Extra details from original publication
This species differs from Globigerina bulloides d'Orbigny in having 3 chambers comprising the last whorl, in its cancellated instead of spinose wall, and its high arched aperture which may be even elongated in some specimens.

This species is common to abundant throughout the Agua Fresca formation, more abundant in the upper than in the lower part of well P-7.
